Gotcha
Essential knowledge when playing pool.

4 pints does the job for me. What's the physics of that?

Alcohol obviously opens your mind to the Force allowing you to let go and just trust your feelings

Highly recommend his book. He had a wit and charisma about him as well as incredible scientific iintellect and curiosity. His work on the Challenger disaster inquiry is worth its own story distinct from everything else because up until then he rarely got involved in official matters like that but he was integral in that inquiry. Plus he took a great value in arts and having some overlap which made him a good public figure compared to a lot of his contemporaries who were outstanding scientists but a bit stuffy.

It was made into a film, it was really engrossing.

My science knowledge was improved merely by watching The Big Bang Theory.

Star Trek for me. In fact, there is NOTHING I do not know about tachyons. If you give me a few minutes, I'll tell you all about them yesterday.
